“There’s also something very aggressive, I find, for people who spoil things for people,” she added to Entertainment Weekly.

“To ruin it so you somehow look like a smart person? I don’t even know what value ruining a surprise is.

“It’s like going up to somebody [and] going, ‘Oh, you’re going to have a surprise party.’ Well, f**k you. Thank you so much for ruining what should be a pleasure, and it is a pleasure, so don’t ruin it.”

And to those who might consider spoiling Knives Out, she simply added: “I shall come for you.”

The movie, penned and directed by Rian Johnson features an all-star ensemble cast, as a family gathering around thew birthday of a celebrated crime novelist goes horribly wrong.

It stars – deep breath - Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell and Christopher Plummer.

Having received rave reviews following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last September, the movie lands in UK cinemas tomorrow.
